MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 2 represents the energy of Duality. Human’s means of discernment is based upon a comparison. We can know one thing by its equal and opposite “other.” We know Darkness only because we know Light. At what degree does Dark become Light? Or, hot become cold? They are one and the same thing to their equal and opposite degrees. We must know one to know the other.
Duality allows us to discern a direction of movement. Like the Earth’s unseen forces of magnetic polarity, Human’s discernment of duality is our guiding force for a Spiritual migration.
The most Ancient Principles of Spiritual Law describe the world as a mental construct. We define the world by our own perception.
Tone 2 inspires our Intention through duality. Tone 2 is said to present the choice “to be or not to be.” We choose an Intention for Creation from “all that is not.” We manifest our Creation by raising our perception of “what is.” Human’s fundamental movement of Transformation is the back and forth perception of one thing and its other.
Flint/ETZNAB is also known as the “Mirror.” Tone 2 emphasizes the aspect of Flint that offers a Mirror of Reality. When Flint is struck it produces a spark. Comparing one thing to another is the Divine Spark of our Intelligence.
On 1 Earth/CABAN I woke up to thoughts focused on Injustice. I first wondered how this would be my unconscious state of mind after an Ascension of Wisdom by Forgiveness. Detached from the “emotions of injustice,” I could see how Earth/CABAN presented “Injustice” to Inspire a clear direction for the creation of “Justice.” I was able to see my negative thoughts as a source of buried treasure. Apart from my emotions, I saw how this Inspiration offered a clear direction for my “next Wise thing to do.”
Flint/ETZNAB is said to reveal the “hard truths” about our self. Flint presents the temptation to act out of our negative emotions. By presenting a clear reflection of our darkness, we are given a clear reflection of our way to the Light. Flint’s fact-revealing mission holds the purpose of sweeping the darkness away. Flint represents a clearing of our own karma. Karma is the law of Cause and Effect… the justice of reaping what we sow. Flint can sweep away our seeds of negativity.
Flint is said to deliver the Truth as a “crystal sword cast down along the path of a lightning flash,” a spark of intelligence. Our feelings of injustice reflect our illusion of powerlessness. When our mind is stuck in that illusion, we stop moving as though we were powerless. We fail to employ our strength. We’re inclined to be the victim and give up. Through Flint’s reflection of our movements of “powerlessness” we can discern the movement of “power.”
“Injustice” can be met with TWO kinds of movement. The movement of “powerlessness” is to stand still. We accept it as we do nothing but grumble and complain over the state of our “victimhood.” We may not even realize there’s an alternative action. There is an equal and oppose response in a movement of “power.”
I realized there was something more I could do to resolve my own situation of “injustice.” I could continue to stand in my power, calling for the equity of injustice. I have nothing to lose by standing in my own Truth. I no longer have to just roll over and say, “this is just the way this is going to be.” Through continued forward movement, I can hold open the Truth of Unlimited Possibility.
The Intention of Tone 2 is to help us define a way forward that ignites our passion for movement. Flint/ETZNAB can present the Inspiration for Creation by showing us a darkness that can be transformed to Light. Even if we fail in manifesting our desired outcome, we can present the Light for all to see. I can see how the source of my suffering lies in the failure of others to acknowledge the truth of an inequity. My pain lies more in the lack of understanding than in the actual burden of the inequity. I also realized there are an unlimited number of ways that this challenge can be resolved, when my mind is focused on the ways of moving instead of the pain of standing still.
Flint/ETZNAB can perfectly reflect our perceived Reality of Good and Bad. We are given a direction for movement to raise the “degree” of our perception by the way we respond to it. Duality exists as the motivation for creation. Our knowledge comes from knowing the black and white to see the degree between one thing and another. To be transformed, we only need to raise the darkness of our negativity by a single degree. We can create the world of Divine Justice, raising our perception one degree at a time. Not only can we raise the degree of our Happiness, but we can create the momentum of moving in a positive direction.
Flint/ETZNAB holds the innate ability to discriminate emotions from fact. Flint persons are said to be tireless to protect, defend, or cure others by personal sacrifice. Wielding a Sword of Truth, falsehoods are cut away. Nearing the completion of the 8th uinal, Flint presents the energy and motivation to keep going to defend our own Truth of Divine Justice.
Ascending from the Seed/KAN trecena, we learned that Wisdom can only be acquired through Forgiveness. We can use Flint’s innate ability of reflection to recognize the True from the False, discriminating the Facts from our Illusions. When we realize the darkness within, we don’t need to waste time considering “what’s wrong with me?” We can grasp the Truth as a treasure that offers a direction for a Creation that Transforms Darkness into Light.
To all my relations, may we remember Flint/ETZNAB as the Power, like a knife, that can remove our darkness and sweep it away. May we remember the “active principle” of the Aztec Ollin (CABAN), that Transformation is the result of an ongoing movement. May we see that we are never stuck in the exact same circumstances when we are motivated to further action. May the Truth that Flint reveals stir our Passion to “move up the scale” of positivity. May we have the spark of intelligence to see that there is always some improvement we can make, a Truth that holds the Potential for All Possibility. As we choose our Intention for this 13-day cycle of Transformation, may we flow with the movement of Mother Earth. May we take each day as it comes with the simple Intention of moving our perceptions of “injustice” up the scale to “justice” by one degree at a time. May we stand firm in a position of Forgiveness that makes possible a Wise discernment of the direction we would go to to raise our Darkness to Light.

A NEW COMMITMENT TO GRATITUDE:
I’m sharing a the “21-Days of Gratitude” as a perpetual Personal Ceremony through the next journey to 8 Monkey/CHUEN Maya New Year. This 21 days started on 11 Jaguar/IX and ends in synchronicity, on 12 Jaguar/IX – 12’s Tone of Understanding, the Magic of Gratitude (Jaguar/IX).
We are approaching the Global Burner Day, 4 Sun/AHAU, on December 15th. 4 Sun/AHAU a very significant date on the Tzolk’in calendar, central to Mayan prophecies of Transformation. (December 21, 2012 prophecies were based on its Mayan date, 4 Sun/AHAU.) Burner Days release a build-up of residual energies to restore the Balance of our Relationships. Personal ceremonies are often observed by the Maya during days leading up to Burner Days.
21-Days of Gratitude: Day 5
I’m grateful that life is an experience of movement… that anytime we feel we have no other choice than to be stuck where we are, we are looking face-to-face with an illusion. I’m grateful that the Whole of Life is a Movement and that things will change for the better when we continue to employ our Power to move in the direction of our Dream of Creation.

2 Flint/ETZNAB (Cherokee: Flint Dawi’sgala)
Galactic Tone 2: Mysterious as the question ‘to be or not to be?” Two is the recognition of the separation of self from all else and the desire to be rejoined. Walking a balance while making choices of all kinds, light/dark, male/female, good/bad, Yin/Yang, is the energy of this number. Experiencing the differences between one and another is the use and purpose of this number.
Flint/ETZNAB: Mirror of reality. As a struck flint, these persons are the divine sparks of intelligence. Flint’s innate abilities are utilized to discriminate emotions from fact. Flint persons stand tireless to protect, defend, or cure others by personal sacrifice. By courageously wielding the sword of truth, falsehoods are cut away. Flints, it was said, can receive information on inter-personal troubles or evil plots of others by reflecting in an obsidian mirror. Their valiant service as warriors of the truth must be impeccable or they will experience sufferings of accidents, misunderstandings and gossip.
Cherokee, Flint/DAWI’SGALA: Opener of the Way, a creator, innovator, stretches the mind to outside limits of capabilities. Changes the static to the dynamic. Brings about change, often through separation and destruction. Beams the Stellar Ray of Truth to Earth as a crystal sword cast down along the path of a lightning flash. The transformer brings things to a head and wipes the slate clean.
